Sci-Fi: A game developer wrestles with the question of whether he's real or just a construct of a game he developed and must contend with others who try to stop him after he discovers the truth.

Thomas Anderson (KEANU REEVES) is known for being the programming whiz who created the game The Matrix and he currently works for the gaming company Deus Machina run by Mr. Smith (JONATHAN GROFF).

But Thomas is troubled by visions of having been in that game himself as Neo -- where artificial intelligence robots have created the illusion of normal reality for humans who are actually unconsciously held in pods as power sources for the robot world -- to the point that he's seeing a psychiatrist (NEIL PATRICK HARRIS) who tries to assure him that everything is okay.

In reality, though, he's right, and others who can transport themselves into the Matrix from the outside -- such as Bugs (JESSICA HENWICK) and Morpheus (YAHYA ABDUL-MATEEN II) -- have discovered an anomaly that has them troubled. Unaware of any of this is Neo's former battle colleague Trinity (CARRIE-ANNE MOSS) who currently doesn't recognize Neo and believes she's a motorcycle builder.

But as Thomas/Neo is brought up to speed, other past warriors, such as Niobe (JADA PINKETT SMITH), are asked to help as the robots do everything in their power -- and in their created illusion -- to prevent Neo and Trinity from thwarting them again.

If they're fans of the "Matrix" films they probably will.
For violence and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
